Under the hood lies its beating heart: Nissan’s legendary 300 horsepower, 3.5-liter, VQ V6 engine. From sodium-filled exhaust valves and anodized pistons, to the high-flow tuned induction system, it’s designed to exhilarate from idle to redline.
Adrenaline on tap. Put it in Sport, and you’ll sharpen throttle response, steering feel and transmission tuning for a pulse-raising ride. The system even pumps a more powerful engine note into the cabin, thanks to available Active Sound Enhancement.
Engineered to satisfy even the most die-hard enthusiast, Maxima’s next-generation Xtronic CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller. The result is a more connected, spirited driving experience – all without sacrificing fuel economy.
Boomerang-shaped headlights feature an eye-catching LED signature line.
Maxima’s aluminum-alloy wheels are aggressively styled.
Maxima with Nissan Intelligent Mobility offers available technology that can help you find that new restaurant, serves up live traffic and weather alerts. It even features a Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant. Imagine the possibilities of an available navigation system with connected technology that helps keep you in touch.
Maxima’s premium interior features available quilted inserts, made from premium leather-appointed or Italian-made Alcantara® – a material usually reserved for high-end performance cars. Pair with front Zero Gravity Seats, and you get unmatched interior comfort.
Available climate-controlled front seats offer individual heating and cooling for driver and passenger, making comfort as easy as turning a knob.
Using the Nissan Intelligent Key®, you can start the Maxima remotely and heat up or cool down the cabin before getting inside. So every time you climb in, it’s at the perfect temperature.
If you need to slam on the brakes, Brake Assist detects how hard you’re braking, and if it senses you are in an emergency, it helps to apply maximum braking force. The EBD system is designed to send extra force to the rear brakes when there’s extra weight in the back.
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) helps you maintain your steered path, while the Traction Control System (TCS) helps reduce wheelspin in low-traction situations. And when you have to brake suddenly, the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps you maintain steering control, while Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) sends extra force to the rear brakes to compensate for additional rear passengers or cargo.
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) is another way we’re working to help keep children safe. The LATCH system lets you secure LATCH-compatible child restraints in the back seat without having to use seat belts or a locking clip. Proving our commitment, the Snug Kids® Child Safety Seat Fit Guide lists child seats that fit the rear seats of Nissan vehicles, as well as offers invaluable tips on correct installation.
